Ginzadon's Premium Japanese-Korean Cuisine in RWM

If you are looking for a semi-private restaurant to indulge on Japanese-Korean cuisine, Ginzadon in Newport Mall can be a good suggestion for you. It's slightly hidden on the second level of the mall, which you can access via the escalator near Maxim's Cafe.

Ginzadon's Interior in Newport Mall

A place for potential "zen" despite the notion
One thing I really enjoyed when we dined here is how "peaceful" it seemed. No kidding. I was able to pause for a while and reflect subtly while I bonded with my mom and sister. I know it sounds a bit weird to find "comfort" and "peace" in a place very close to a Casino, but it was.

Ginzadon - Japanese-Korean Cuisine
Ginzadon offers two of the world-famous cuisines, Japanese and Korean. With this, you can find sushi, sashimi, teppan, samgyupsal and galbi among others in its selection. For the night, we got 4 J-dishes and 1 K-dish. Let's begin with the appetizers.

The Shake Salmon (P610) was dreamy with its almost melt-in-your mouth texture. Although this dish is heavy on the pocket with its regular price, the cuts were large which made it seem like its x1.5 serving size from other Japanese restaurants. This was an excellent starter!

Ginzadon's Honor Roll - Japanese Restaurant

The Honor Roll (P488) was something very foreign for me, and I ordered this because it had a poster outside. It seemed very inviting to try, so I did. This featured a lightly seared/torched tuna with foie gras in its core. It was fresh, but may not be tasty on its own, which is why there was a beet-based sauce on the side to complete the experience.

It was an interesting dish, and I loved how it was new for my palate. It's a good thing my sister urged me to try something "different", and not order dishes I'm familiar with.

Gyutama Okonomiyaki of Ginzadon in Newport Mall

The Gyutama Okonomiyaki (P420) was a very lovely treat. I loved how "eggy" the pancake was which brought fluffiness to the texture. And while the toppings seem very simple, they were enough to make flavors float -- creamy, lightly sweet and meaty.

Famous Dragon Roll Maki of Ginzadon

The Dragon Roll Maki (P1,100) was truly majestic in its form and taste (although in price too, just utilize existing promos and discounts). The creation was both artistic and gastronomical. All the flavors from the mango, cucumber, crab meat, prawn and the salmon skin on top produced a harmonious blend of palatable experience, marked with dreamy sweetness.

LA Kalbi Gui of Ginzadon

The LA Kalbi Gui (P1,280) was the only Korean dish we had for the night. While its sweet smokey BBQ taste appealed to me, the plating was rather "sad". It was too far away from what appeared on the menu. I was expecting an eye-pleasing spectacle considering the price, but it was as simple as it got. I might be biased by my love for Japanese food, but go for them instead.

offers hotel-like experience with its wonderful ambiance and service. While we only tried 1 Korean dish, I would suggest that you for the Japanese selection instead. Those dishes were mostly exquisite, and although the prices may not be that pocket-friendly, you'll get to try something different.
